Perfect love casts out the fear of Jesus's call to Him and call to mission.
There is a fear that accompanies Jesus's call. If there isn't, there should be - lest we take His call too casually. Even Jesus says, "Beware!" as He calls us, and sends us. But, perfect love casts out fear. When we see the Gospel rightly we're moved to Jesus's mission not because of words - pep-rally. When we see the Gospel rightly we're moved to Jesus's mission because He is mingled with us - union with Christ! This is Jesus's promise that we examine this week as we conclude this section of our series in The Gospel According to Matthew.
